Projects / MKDoc


MKDoc is a Web site building, serving, and content management tool that was designed to encourage the use of good information architecture and the production of accessible Web sites. It provides different ways for the public to interact with and navigate between documents, including a sitemap, search facility, Dublin Core XML/RDF metadata, and printer versions of pages. All management, document creation, editing, and organizing is done via a Web browser, and the look is controlled using Petal templates. Unicode/UTF-8 is used to support all languages, including right-to-left languages.
